AORTIC INSUFFICIENCY OR INCOMPETENCY





Category: Circulatory System

The valves are not doing their work
thoroughly.

Symptoms. They are often long absent; headache, dizziness, faintness,
flashes of light, difficult breathing, and palpitation on exertion, and
pain in the heart region may occur early. The pain may be dull and
localized, or sharp and radiating to the neck or left arm. When
compensation fails, we have difficult breathing, which is worse at night,
swelling of the eyes and feet, cough, anemia. Sudden death is more common
in this than with any other valvular disease. You can hear a soft blowing
sound by listening with your ear.
